WATER METERS. -
Only those who need a steady and con
sistent water pressure throughout the
twenty-four hours, for their business,
or those whose property suffers from
extra fire loss, due to lack of water
pressure, it is only these who feel the
need of some method by which the City
of. New Bern, can give its patrons a
water pressure, regular and full to a
good working pressure, every hour and
every day in the week.
The Journal has suggested several
times. Duttine in water meters, to
make consumers pay for the water they
actually use, and so prevent the enor
mous waste of water which a cold
night, a hot day, or the running of the
motors for fans, etc , nt hours when no
one may be using them.
is a very present aggravation, xsui
less than sixty days remain for poll tax
payment, if the voter is to exercise his
franchise this year at elections, and it
must not be forgotten that failure to
pay before May first, in no way cancels
the payment, for it must be paid some
time. The loss is to the voter. He
loses his identity at election time.
Tax paying to the general citizen,
seems to represent the giving up of
money without any particular return.
Taxes are always wasted, says the
citizen, and I don't see where my money
goes. And thus reasoning the citizen
dodges the sheriff and tax collector un
til forced to payment because of some
penalty, like the loss of election rights,
or the added cost for having his name
on the hnquent list.
And now it is for the voter who woul J
be one with every right, to pay at once
his County and State poll tax, or be
come a non-entity at election time, and
at the same time be chased by the tax
collector. hat a glorious worldTttiis
would be for sheriffs and all tax col
lectors, if tax payers Jwould rush for
ward early in each year, and Py
their taxes! But such an ideal world
is not for presenter future generations.
The growling tax payer is to be always
a feature of each generation, while
sheriffs and tax collectors are to be
ever hunters of the fleeing man, who
puts off until the last from his tax pay

Bern. ' Conference of Partie In
' - forested In Immigration.
' Raleigh, March 6. The fact that
Hon. T. K. Bruner, Secretary of the
State Board of Agriculture has made a
sojourn has already been chronicled,
but there are facts that will, be devel
oped bj that visit that have so far
scarcely been brought to light Mr.
Bruner talked today with the Journal
correspondent regarding some of the
fish interests along the shores of our
State waterways. He said in substance:
There are certain things affecting the
fiph industry in North Carolina that are
in a condition which demand the most
serious consideration from the people
of the entire State. While these con
ditions have effect with the fishermen
most of all, it being a source of revenue
to them, the whole people are affected
however in food supply, and it is this
aspect of the case which is of most in
terest at present. Fishes far below
the normal size of food fishes aretakenj
some finding -a market at ridiculous
figures, and some being hauled out and
used as fertilizers on the lands ad
jacent the streams and sounds; for in
stance: 1 saw two buahel boxes' of mul
let at New Bern, averaging four to six
inches in length; those boxes bring 50
cents each, twenty five cents going to
the boatmen for delivery at the mar
ket, and the other twenty five cents to
the fishermen. Had those mullets been
allowed to remain in the water three to
four years and then marketed during
the months when those fish are in prime
thkt is, during August, September,
October and November, the contents of
the box would have been worth fifty
dollars instead of only fifty cents.''
There was held today an important
conference of the interested parties
concerning the immigration movement
in North Carolina. M. V. Richards,
industrial agent of the Southern Rail
way Co., WilberMcKoy, of the Atlantic
Coast Lino were for a long time with
Governor Glenn, and later with Com'
missioner Patterson of the Department
of Agriculture and Hon. T. K. Bruner,
Secretary of the State Board of Agri
culture, J. W. White, of the Seaboard
system, was detained in Portsmouth be
cause of the fire to that company.

The size of the matter is that the
fishing interests of this State have been
so juggled though the politicians, that
there has been nothing accomplished,
and the present conditions as de
scribed by Secretary Bruner is the re
sult, and until there be some practical
and radical changes made, the cry of no
fish will be more of a reality than it is
today, in Eastern Carolina.
The fishing interests of North Carolina
must be first entirely removed from
politics. A commission of practical
business men should be placed in charge,
men who have no favorites to look af
ter, and who will have power to deal
with the situation as local conditions
demand. No greater consideration de
